> DESCRIPTION

Human Resources hosts The Mystics Circle, an exhibition of video works by Skip Arnold, Brian Bress, William E. Jones, Hilja Keading, Mike Kelley, Candice Lin, Davida Nemeroff and Margie Schnibbe. 

Coinciding with the summer solstice the show’s titled alludes to the summer slaying of a UCLA student in 1991. The killing happened in the mouth of The Manson tunnel, a railroad outpost frequented by cults in Chatsworth, on the brightest night of the year. The work presented in the show investigates the dual themes of comedy and tragedy through the identity of Los Angeles as a saturated paradise that pumps crude oil into broad daylight.

The first weekend, June 19th, will commence with an opening reception in honor of the artists. The afternoon of Sunday June 27th will be the first of two related public programs featuring critic and video curator Catherine Taft in conversation with exhibiting artists. This will be a cocktail hour discussion, moderated by Taft, in which viewers are invited to ask questions as artists share and discuss videos both included in the show as well as additional, rarely seen works. 

Human Resources is a collective of individuals that aims to support the expression of art performers by providing them with a gallery venue as well as video and sound archiving and documentation of performances. Human Resources is entirely volunteer run and seeks to foster widespread public appreciation of the performative arts and to serve as a point of convergence for diverse and disparate art communities to engage in conversation and ideas.
